I'm a guitarist. I fell in love with and studied the violin for a short period of time, but, alas, the guitar is a jealous mistress. I still worship the violin from afar, though.
That said; I'm hoping to get some direction in finding a new interpretation/performer of Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin. These are some of my favorite pieces, ever, and I've been listening to the Scheryng recording on Odyssey for a long time. It's, by far, my favorite...even though I enjoy the Milstein and Fournier interpretations, as well. I've been looking for the Shumsky recording, but had no luck, to this point.
I'm not as keyed into the classical circuit as I used to be (esp. violin) and, as much as I love those artists, I'd be interested to hear of anybody new (or from that past) on the circuit that's made a great recording of those pieces.
